"Everyone has a role to play in making our community safer!"
October is Community Safety Month - a time to showcase community members working together to make WA a safer place to work, play and travel.
Community Safety Month has been coordinated by ICCWA for the past five years, and is planned with the support of safety organisations, state government agencies and external organisations.
The month is celebrated in both Victoria and WA and aims to raise awareness that everyone has a role to play in making our community safer!
